CNN’s John King Bumbles ‘PTSD’

Post-stress traumatic disorder?

Ahh, the pitfalls of TV.

Last night on CNN’s “AC360,” John King was discussing Navy Yard shooter Aaron Alexis‘s past.

“They knew about the 2004 incident where he shot out some tires from some construction workers,” King said of authorities, speaking in his typically fast cadence. “His dad said he had PST,” — at this point King hesitated, paused and seemed to ponder the matter: Was it PSTD or something else?

Unfortunately he didn’t catch himself. He barreled on, “His dad said he had PST PSTD from 9-11. He was never prosecuted.”
